Mangala has been out on loan twice, and spent last season recovering from serious injury.

It's not like we've just forgotten he existed. If we could have got rid three years ago we would have.

Monaco linked to Shaqiri to the tune of £33m. Dont want Shaq attack leaving, even if it's a great deal. Need depth.
If you had bought in the summer I would have said sell him. He's not quality enough depth for you unless paired with 2 of the big 3 up front. I mean I'm pretty sure 3 of his 6 goals last year were deflected around the keeper. Whenever he played without them (Wolves FA Cup) he looked terrible.. as he did at Stoke and a reason that only one team wanted to pay his price.

What a sook.
Great player but really he does come across as a bitch quits when he knows real are about to go downhill so he looks better comes back after they spud it up to more money and his record looking better with promises of investment has the the president splash the cash on a number of players sooks that he misses out on one guy and threatens to quit

That was just a smart move though.

Lol unwritten rule where you dont play a player who is negotiating a transfer? First I've heard of it. If Bayern were smart they would negotiate a Sane deal now at a knockdown price due to the ACL injury.
why would we entertain a knock down price?

What club could afford to effectively freeze out a player like that after paying that amount of money for him which still a lot now but was even more at the time of the signing? I know for a fact arsenal could not do what city have done here, mustafi is a good example and we paid less for him at the time.
Where do I start?

Fernando Torres being loaned to Milan after being the British Transfer record and 6th most expensive transfer ever?
Andy Carroll?
Alexis Sanchez?
Alvaro Morata?
Bakayako?
Batshuayi?
Danny Drinkwater?

You bought Lacazette for 50m and sat him on the bench for the best part of a season.

Laca missed two months through injury I think.

Those are chelsea players, the original man. city same/same

Lacazette is a poor example, sanchez is a swap deal and carroll got sold reasonably fast not frozen out

City have done a great job in recruiting the right players no doubt, a lot of there rotation/squad players would be starting in most other teams, the money they have and ability to just brush whatever transfer mistakes they make under the carpet gives them an unfair advantage over the rest of the competition, there's no question in my mind about that.
